01 April 2015

Scrapbooking in action

Does it work? We invited three kids, Enzo (8), Trym (8) and Molly (6) into our Ideas Lab to see if our scrapbook idea actually grabs the attention of the very people we are trying to inspire. Check out what they came up with. 

“One time at the beach we grilled sausages and found a big bird that looked really angry.”
